Join Our Volunteer Team

Due to the pandemic, we are currently not accepting volunteer applications. Kindly monitor this page for volunteer recruitment updates. Thank you for your interest and patience!

The partnership between North York General Hospital and our volunteers began in 1966 when an inaugural meeting was held and 500 volunteers were recruited from the community to support our soon to be built hospital. Learn more about the history of Volunteer Services at North York General.

Today, our volunteer program has three unique streams, each making a world of difference for our patients, residents, and their families.

Patient and Family Advisors

Patient and Family Advisors, North York General Hospital

Patient and Family Advisors are volunteers who share their unique thoughts and perspectives to ensure the voices of patients and families are heard, considered and included in North York General's programs and plans for the future. Councils and committees across the hospital include Patient and Family Advisors in their decision-making processes. Learn more about volunteering as a Patient and Family Advisor.

Service Volunteers

Service volunteers share their time and talent, delivering compassionate and respectful service to our patients, residents, and their families across the hospital's various sites.






Spiritual Care Volunteers
